What motivates your desire to give back?
My story is one of success. Thanks to the many opportunities that have been given to me, it’s time that I give back. I’m very proud to be part of the south Orange County community.
Why are you supporting the medical center?
As I’ve grown older and encountered more medical needs for family and friends, the best way I feel I can help is to be an advocate for quality care for my community, and what better way to do it than to join the Mission Hospital Foundation.
Why did you agree to join the foundation board?
It was a very gradual process. By the time I was asked to join the foundation board, I had already been helping for several years, both at planning events and at bringing donors to benefit our hospital.
